Waltz Through the Hills is set in the Australian outback. A pair of orphans, not wishing to be separated, attempt to traverse the Down Under continent in order to reach a ship bearing their loving grandparents. They are aided during their odyssey by affable native Ernie Dingo (wanna bet that's not his real name?) Though initally frightened by Dingo, the children come to love him as dearly as any blood relative. A Waltz Through the Hills debuted in the US as a two-part presentation on PBS' Wonderworks television series.
